Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The replacement transmission that comes up on databases is larger than the one in the car.

I'm trying to replace the transmission, but twice a transmission that does not fit the engine came, and the (wrong) one matches the VIN number according to the model number (I called a dealer). The mechanic describes one difference (besides the bad fit) as the transmission coming out of the car has just one pan, the one that came has two. It's possible the original engine was replaced I guess... if there are any ideas, please let me know. thanks.
